Arts Award Success
Students receive qualification from Trinity College London for course completed during Covid-19 lockdown.
Thursday 1 July 2021
A celebration was in order this week after a number of Ridgewood students successfully completed their Bronze Art Award with Trinity College London, which they undertook during lockdown last year. The Arts Award scheme inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it's creative, valuable and accessible. It's available across the UK, and can be achieved at five levels: four qualifications and an introductory award. Students had to complete a range of units and skills including developing a new arts skill, researching an arts inspiration and sharing their arts skills with others.
Mrs Humphrey, who coordinates the Arts Award at Ridgewood School told us: ''the students have completed some fantastic work include developing skills in playing musical instruments, learning graphic art design and portrait drawing. They were enthusiastic despite the restrictions that lockdown has placed on us and really expanded their own knowledge, and the knowledge of others of a range of arts forms. The Arts Award will be running again from September, and we are looking forward to welcoming even more students to take part!”
Congratulations and well done to all of our students that took part this year: Cara Darby (7L), Jorja Park (7E), Zoe Leigh (8I), Tiffany Robson (8I) and Aidan Waring (12S).
